The 78 year-old man who suffered critical head injuries yesterday morning after being attacked on Carrington Rd died in Auckland Hospital shortly before 1.30pm today.

Jashmatbai Patel of Te Atatu was with family members when he died.

A 27 year-old west Auckland man is due to appear in Auckland District Court today charged with assaulting Mr Patel.

No further charges will be laid in relation to the alleged attack today but the matter of Mr Patel's homicide is obviously still being investigated by Police.
